Competitors delayed during ten-mile Tottenhill time trial
There was a massive turnout for Lynn Cycling Club’s evening 10-mile Tottenhill time trial last week, where competitors were stopped in their tracks by traffic signals.
The weather conditions were favourable consisting of a warm evening and light winds.
Unfortunately riders were unlucky enough this week to find that the highways authorities decided to put up road traffic lights at the Wimbotsham turning on the A10, a few minutes after competitors had started.
This didn’t stop the 28 riders completing the distance but their times were distorted against their previous results.
The club’s results were: Jamie Sparrow 22.26, Simon Riches 23.33, Nicki Brown 26.29 Trevor Marshall 27.08, Ray Barnett 29.01, Tye Rugg 32.23, Sara Hardy 32.31, Alec and Ellie Marshall (2-up) 34.24, Tony Pym Hember 40.58, Florence Barnett 28.48. Kris Goldsmith 27.53, Simon Hardy 25.16.
On the previous Wednesday evening, the club’s 10-mile time trial saw all riders facing very strong winds and trying to dodge heavy rain showers for the entrants.
Lynn results: Jamie Sparrow 22.10, Simon Hardy 26.04, Kris Goldsmith 26.36, Nicki Brown 27.27, Trevor Marshall 27.49, James Sutton 27.51, Peter Barber 34.10, Sam May 37.39.
Further afield over the weekend, the second round of the British Cycling Youth Circuit Series saw Bethany Barnett (Lynn Cycling Club second claim member) and her sister Florence competing in the Isle of Man Youth Tour.
